Motorcycle accidents may be caused due to traffic violations or inherent defects in the road being ill maintained or under repair. In most cases, motorcycle accidents are based on faulty traffic on part of one or more vehicles involved in the crash.
New Mexico authorities have observed that many cases of motorcycle accidents are due to distracted driving. Distracted driving may be caused due to driving while intoxicated, driving under the influence, driving while texting or driving while talking on the cell phone. A motorcyclist may also try and lessen the impact of the accident on him by using helmets and wearing clothes that make them more visible on the road.
